Chauvet Professional has expanded its Maverick series with the introduction of the Maverick MK2 Profile. The first profile light in the Maverick series, the 440W LED moving yoke fixture has been designed to perform a wide variety of functions. With an illuminance of up to 1,392 footcandles (14,981 lux) at 16.4’ (5 meters) and a zoom angle of 14° to 36°, the new fixture has the output needed for large venues and the ability to produce a range of beam sizes.

Features include a four-blade framing shutter system with rotation and dual axis movement for each shutter that allows users to shape and size beams with great precision. The fixture’s iris, 3-facet motorized rotating prism and motorized frost provide added beam control.

The Maverick MK2 Profile includes a CMY + CTO color mixing system and color wheel as well as dual rotating and indexing open gobo wheels, which offer continuous scroll at variable speeds.

The Maverick MK2 Profile also features 16-bit dimming; a 3:1 motorized zoom; a color temperature (at full) of 5,883K; a CRI of 90; electronic dimmer; a pan and tilt of 540°/270°; and selectable PWM (Pulse Width Modulation) for flicker-free operation.

Control of the new profile fixture is easy via DMX, WDMX, sACN, and Art-Net. The Maverick MK2 Profile also converts TCP/IP to DMX for shorter data cable runs and offers RDM control over DMX for remote access reporting.
